How Many Basic EHR's are even Certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2?
Interesting post, I wonder how many EHR vendors even have Stage 2 certified ""Basic EHR's" available. How "basic" can an EHR be and still comply with Meaningful Use Stage 2? I agree with you Ken, Stage 2 is daunting enough. I'm looking forward to see how vendors will ease this burden on their users.

Having a 2014-certified EHR is only the first step. Attesting to Meaningful Use Stage 2 is going to require a lot of time and effort, and some providers find it daunting.
